Well, there hasn’t been much new happening on my workdesk in the past several weeks. It seems to be a common phenomenon that many of us creative folk have the occasional slump.
I think my end-of-summer slump was exacerbated by, well… certain changes, that us gals of a certain age experience. You know what I mean. If you don’t, be thankful. 🙂
My poor hubby. I was expressing to a common friend that I needed to find a way to explain to my dear dh that if I burst into tears for no apparent reason he shouldn’t ask why, but just walk away. This friend, another guy, said, “No, don’t walk, Gary, run!” He was probably right, lol.
Anyhow, things have been looking up in the past few weeks. First off, I actually won one of the monthly prizes from participating in Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2012. (Scroll down about 3/4 way and you’ll see me last on the list of winners, sandysewin.)
I own so many TH products, I sincerely hoped they wouldn’t send stuff I already had. They didn’t.
This apron is absolutely perfect for me, as I’m quite a slob and have ruined several pieces of clothing while crafting. I just need to get into the habit of wearing it…
Mario also sent along the Ideaology Travel Labels stamp set. It’s not something I would necessarily have picked out for myself, but I can really see using them for backgrounds and as filler. I like ’em. 🙂 Thanks, guys!
My final new goodie for this week is my new iron. My five year old Rowenta died and I couldn’t find another without the annoying, irritating and super aggravating auto-shutoff, so I decided to upgrade to a DeLonghi Steam Generator. The idea of a constant stream of steam is giving me a happy. 🙂
If you were wondering about the water spots on the apron, that’s cuz I was trying out the new iron & steam on it. It’s awesome.
I’ll give a more detailed review after I’ve used it a bit. Fall clothing sewing coming up!
So happy creating, and happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
